Brady Custom Drums

12" x 7" Brady Custom Snare *


* While the Yamaha website lists a Yamaha snare drum, Larry does use the Brady 12" x 7" for the majority of live applications.

** Also, while the Yamaha site lists Larry as playing Yamaha drums "since 1977", he did play Tama FiberStar drums during the "Boy" and "October" era's - and a Premier Olympic Kit before that.
